Publisher's Summary

Daisy McCrae's life is in tatters. She's lost her job, broken up with her boyfriend, and has been reduced to living in the attic above her family's store, the Union Street Bakery, while learning the business. Making things worse is the constant feeling of not being a "real" McCrae, since she was adopted as a child and has a less-than-perfect relationship with her two sisters. Then a long-standing elderly customer passes away, and for some reason she bequeaths to Daisy a journal dating back to the 1850s, written by a slave girl named Susie. As she reads, Daisy learns more about her family - and her own heritage - than she had ever imagined. Haunted by dreams of the young Susie, she is compelled to look further into the past of the town and her family.

    "Intriguing story line"

    Interesting book, but if you're looking for a cozy mystery, this is not it. In fact, it's not s mystery at all. It is the story of an adopted woman in search of her birth parents.

    "Nice!"

    I enjoyed this story very much but it was not my favorite. I liked how it had several different stories.

    Story
    "I'd like my money back"

    I was looking for a cozy murder mystery and this popped up. It's def not a murder mystery, and it's got ghosts, wghich I really don't like and they weren' t mentioned in the summary. Wordt of all though, the characters were so uninteresting I just couldn't care about them. So no, did not like this at all.

    "Great book"

    Loved the story line. This could have really happened. The narrator brought the characters to life.
    I didn't like all the dirty language used. There's no call for it.

    What did you love best about The Union Street Bakery?

    Great book!!!! Can't wait to read the next in the series. The character development is good and the presentation is a perfect fit for the story. Probably on of the best I have had from Audible yet.
